UK Cinema Association Launches Fund to Improve Cinema Experience for those with Hearing Loss

Posted by CHARTS

An estimated 11 million people in the UK (about one in six) experience hearing loss, a number expected to rise to 15.6 million (about one in five) by 2035. The Technology Challenge Fund has been established to help catalyse innovation in technology that will allow people with hearing loss to have a more inclusive cinema experience. Up to £75,000 is available to support innovative projects in this competition. The Fund is open to all individuals and companies – both UK and international based. The funder is looking to support not just the cinema sector, but also those working in the wider technology and academic sectors. Deadline: 28th September 2018 https://www.cinemauk.org.uk/2018/07/uk-cinema-association-launches-subtitling-challenge-fund/
